Get ready to bust a move with top dogs Diana, Doug and Tony as we battle it out on the dancefloor for big wins in Light & Wonder’s latest release, Disco Dawgs!
Just when you thought your disco-going days were over, Light & Wonder brings it all back in Disco Dawgs. Although discos are more for kids parties these days, we won’t turn our nose up at a chance to show off our groovy dance moves and maybe a bit of dad dancing. As the title suggests, Light & Wonder has swapped out humans for some adorable pups instead, which is probably for the best.
Light & Wonder (originally SG Digital) has covered plenty of themes in their time, from sweaty gladiators in Spartacus Megaways to murder mysteries in Cluedo Cash Mystery, there is always something new to look forward to in a Light & Wonder slot. For those of us who are big fans of Light & Wonder slots, will Disco Dawgs live up to its expectations?
Let’s play on and find out!
Disco Dawgs is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbol types from left to right, starting from the left-most reel. The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€14 per spin, with a small selection in between the two.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Disco Dawgs is the Logo, followed by the Dog Bowl, Collar and Music Box. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. There is also a Wild symbol present, which substitutes for all other symbols except Scatters. There is more than Wild symbol available in Diso Dawgs, but the Pomeranian Wild is only present in the base game. Pomeranian Wilds always appear with a Multiplier of x2 or x3.
During both the base game and Free Spins round, keep an eye out for disco-dancing Wild Dawgs, which bring some much needed excitemebt to an otherwise boring base game. More on this below!
During any random spin in the base game, a Wild Dawg in the form of a Pug can appear on reels 2-5.
Once a Pug Wild appears, it will remain active for a total of 5 Spins, including the triggering spin. If for whatever reason you choose to change you current bet with a Pug Wild present, it will no long be active until the bet is changed back to the triggered bet.
During the 5 spins, all Pug Wilds present will move to a new position on the reels. Please note, Pug Wilds are only present during the Base Game. If Pug Wilds are active and the Bonus Buy option is selected, the remaining Pug Wild spins will play out after the Free Spins round is complete.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters in any position on the reels, triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 8, 12 and 15 Free Spins, plus a Multiplier of x3, x3 or x4 for any Dax Wilds that land, respectively. The Free Spins round cannot be retriggered.
Another Wild Dawg to look out for is the Dax Wild, which only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the Free Spins round.
Dax Wilds will always land with a Multiplier of x3 or x4, depending on the number of triggering Scatters awarded. All Dax Wilds will remain on the reels for the duration of Free Spins, moving from one position to the next with each Free Spin. A total of 9 Dax Wilds can be in play at any one time during the Free Spins round.
For those outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
The Free Spins round can be purchased for 200x your current bet. The RTP when purchasing Free Spins remains the same at 96.00%.
Light and Wonder has seemingly witnessed the success of The Dog House before trying their hand at their own rendition, at least that’s what it feels like.
The similarities between Disco Dawgs and The Dog House are quite striking, disco theme aside. The question is, which one is the preferable option? The potential would suggest that Disco Dawgs is the preferable option if you’re the type of player that looks only for slots with huge win potential.
Disco Dawgs is certainly a bigger dog than The Dog House, and even The Dog House Megaways which are capable of 6,750x and 12,305x respectively. Disco Dawgs boasts an impressive 17,413x in comparison, which may certainly sway some.
To further make a case for Disco Dawgs. it also seems a bit more versatile than The Dog House slots, with Dawg Wilds which seems to diversify the game more than the Wilds in The Dog House could.
Do we think that Disco Dawgs will overtake these fluffy favourites that we’re all so fond of? Probably not. Sheer popularity and reputation may give The Dog House the edge, but Light and Wonder certainly hasn’t done a bad job here.
Overall, Disco Dawgs might look like a bit of a copy at first, but it does enough to separate itself from other similar games.
